Default Leaky Petcock...

Hey gang... so I finished my build this weekend (I'll post pictures in another thread) and I've been riding it around for the last 2 days and have just a few minor tweaks to adjust. one of wich is a leaky petcock. I put teflon tape on the threads just as suggested in the installation instructions but I now have a slow trickle from the tank side of the fuel valve. it is slowly trickling down the hose and puddling on the carb.
any suggestions? also I'm thinking of a hose clamp at the pressure fittings on the valve and the carb connections of the fuel hose. what solutions have you veterans come up with for these issues?

I'm positive it isn't leaking from the tickler button or the float bowl housing, so in addition to my leaky petcock valve, it must be the fuel line connections.
